Default 2" M&P barrel markings

I recently picked up this nice 2" M&P. The serial number is S9517XX, so I am guessing late 1947. All numbers, including the right stock, are matching. The included gold box is appropriate, but there is no visible number on the bottom. It has the satin blue finish similar to my 5 screw "C" series snubby.

The only thing that seems a little off is the second line of the barrel marking. The "SPEC" in the cartridge designation seems lightly struck. The rest of the marking on the barrel looks similar to my other guns from this period.

I don't see any evidence of a refinish. Does this seem to just be normal variation in the marking?

Thanks for any input.
